The Problems with Electric Pickups, Chevrolet Bolt Price Drop
Show Notes

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing the phaseout of federal EV tax credits for Toyota electrified vehicles, and Chevrolet's recently announced decision to drop the price on the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV and offer retroactive discounts to previous Bolt buyers. Tim Esterdahl, founder and publisher of Pickup Truck + SUV Talk, joins us to chat about the issues preventing pure-electric pickup trucks from broader adoption. Tom has a "which is heavier?" quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning pure-electric pickup.
